Ubuntu is a well known desktop Operating System, which uses the Linux kernel, but its server release is getting very popular as well. The reason is the fact that the OS is really light and it'll function on almost any kind of hardware without any issues, utilizing its resources to the max. Ubuntu is also extremely reliable and secure and all the Long-Term Support (LTS) editions are supported for at least five years, which warrants that you should have a protected and stable software environment on your hosting server all the time. In addition, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities globally, which means that if you experience any issue or have any question, you will find a number of resources on the Internet. One of the key benefits of this OS is the fact that it has a large number of software packages that can be easily adjusted according to your needs and the requirements of the applications that you need to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any license fees any time. In contrast, other Operating Systems are paid and their program code isn't accessible, therefore it cannot be changed.
Ubuntu in VPS Hosting
We provide Ubuntu with our Linux VPS hosting packages and depending on what requirements your web applications have, you can select the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the OS with just a few clicks throughout the order process. If you get your server with no web hosting Control Panel, the sole software which will be installed in addition to Ubuntu is the Apache web server software, so you're able to use a console to gain access to the hosting server and to install a software environment of your liking. If you acquire your server with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, you'll have a web interface with which you are able to control almost everything as easily as you control an ordinary shared account and all essential MySQL, FTP and email server software will be pre-installed, however the root access to your server will be restricted.
